What customers say about "Display"
Acer Predator XB271HK UHD Gaming Monitor
  • IPS bleeding is minimal. The top-right corner of my screen is most affected, but it's not easy to see.
  • Easier on my very sensitive eyes as long as I turn the brightness way down from default.
  • Out of the box the color accuracy is far better than anything else I've ever had.
  • Games feel so incredibly smooth and buttery and I absolutely love the enhanced experience.
  • This monitor from acer is well priced, has an amazing ips display. I love the pixel density.
Acer Predator XB281HK UHD Gaming Monitor
  • It's a beautiful g-sync monitor with excellent colour reproduction
  • Fantastic screen, extremely sharp and vivid. Looks and feels quality.
  • Brilliant monitor. Slightly dark in light levels but crisp picture.
  • Poor angle of visibility. Anything other than straight on there's a marked change in brightness.
  • Colours were washed out and the screen had a bluish tinge to it, no matter what preset was used.
